The North Hertfordshire Museum opened its doors on Saturday, almost nine years after the facility’s plans were first approved.
Visitors enjoyed family activities and a range of exhibitions that showcase some of the county's finest art and archaeology.
In the Discover North Herts gallery, visitors could witness tens of thousands of years of history before their eyes - with a mammoth tusk and various artefacts from across Hertfordshire proudly on display.
Moving upstairs, you can find The Queen Mother's christening gown, military equipment and a large Victorian chemist counter among other things.
Year 3 pupils from Samuel Lucas JMI School in Hitchin performed a rap they wrote themselves, which featured Samuel Lucas and Emily Davis, the suffragist.
